Yes; as Rich shows, if you go to a show, and pic a song, you can simply "copy short cut" (while said song is "selected") and it would appear as follows, if you had selected Lovelight from 6-14-68 (because GoP was there), for example:

Yes, the links work.

May I please hijack the thread to ask a question? When I click the link it takes ages to load in Quicktime before I can hear the song (and no track names appear); how can I change the default player on such a link to Winamp, which I use for most other music-playing defaults? Or is the player determined by the source (e.g. Live Music Archive)?

Depends on your platform (mac, Windows, iPhone etc.) - you need to specify what will be the default player for the mp3 format. On my Mac, these links launch another browser window which plays immediately. Control + click (or right-click on Windows) will present options to DL the file or specify the player you wish to use. Hope that helps...

Be very careful. You don't want to end up like 'old' ah_uh_oh_um, decapitated, knee-capped (not that you can walk anyway, after being decapitated) and now spending the rest of his life surrounded by reinforced steel concrete as part of the foundations of some big sky-scraper (ain't they all big) in a town near you ........... never to see the light of day again.

Thanks for warning me. Quite a Pandora's box, this whole issue. Lucky escape.

Thanks for the help, now I can really bug the @#$%* out of my many friends & relatives that still don't "get" why I love The Grateful Dead so much!

Actually, if I'm gonna' be honest I've kind of given up trying to 'convert' these heathens about the Dead's music. I figure that if after all these years they still don't get...well, they're probably just too dense to ever get it.

Everyone who knows me knows I'm a dyed in the wool Deadhead, so there's really not much else to say. But when they ask me what new music I'm listening to, I almost always send them some links to Railroad Earth shows.

I'm not having much luck converting them to RRE, either, but I'm not giving up! And being able to link to specific songs will be helpful.

Thanks again.
